Martha Stewart’s Cooking School this weekend on PBS

Wow, it’s hard to believe it was 4 years ago that a certain someone was on Martha’s old show as it seems like yesterday. But this weekend we see the premiere of Martha’s new series on PBS titled Martha Stewart’s Cooking School. I’ve screened 3 episodes already before the debut and while it’s definitely not breaking any new tv ground, it’s nice to just sit back and see what Martha does best: teach. And if you’re like me, a refresher is always appreciated.

Stylistically, it’s almost a hybrid of her last show (without the guests) and her previous Living program that ran from 1993 to the early 2000’s.

Check your local PBS listings to find airing times. No Big Bird political jokes :)

    I loved Martha’s shows back in the mid to late 90s. I loved watching her just teach. And Alton Brown. I could never admit that to my friends back then though! I wish those oldies/teaching kind of shows were still on – exciting her new one may be along those lines.

    I happened to catch the Martha Stewart Cooks – egg show (well I fell asleep for part of it). I was majorly disappointed. Is it just me or does she just rehash everything after 2 or 3 years. This show seemed like something she did 4 or 5 years ago at best. Show me something interesting.

    Thank goodness for intelligent, straightforward instruction from a true master professor. I practically drank in all Martha’s information like a hapless nomad staggering in from a desert of vacuous programming a la FN. She lives in the realm of instructors who truly teach you something concrete, like Ina Garten, Lidia Bastianich, and Cook’s Country/Test Kitchen. Thank you, Martha, for your expert advice. Please give us more–I will watch in rapt attention.

    How nice that she is back without the guests and the forced banter. Martha is task oriented and not a people person. I prefer her as a teacher opposed to trying to be an entertainer. Gimme plain ole Martha any day of the week.
